This article has brought many questions to my mind. I wonder what's the future of Mud Creek ATV Park? (home of mud nats in Jacksonville, Tx) I have read this article, and as this development unravels I will post accordingly. Hopefully, this will NOT effect the ATV park at all.

Yeah the way they describe the area, it's exactly where the park is located. In the "mud creek flood plains, 2 miles east of Jacksonville" They say 10,000 surface acres of lake, well MC is what 3500+ acres? thats almost half of the area right there.

The project also would create about 95 miles of shoreline associated with the lake, where animals such as deer could walk, Holcomb previously said.

can they not walk there now?

I'm sure you right walker.....I'm not, in any way, tying to hinder people from going to Mud Creek Park or step on ANY toes. I'm terribly sorry if it comes across that way.

Just a bit of info that I thought would be useful to whomever decides to go there.

We all know, in this area, how much "red tape" is involved with doing anything. Even as simple as adding a deck on to your house around here.....the city, county, and state all have to be involved and everyone has to get their "cut" of everything before it's approved to be done.

I'm sure land owners around that area are quite pleased to know that their land value will most likely DOUBLE from this, and they will hold on to it for as long as they can so the state has to pay them maximum dollar per acre.

That's the same question I had.

From what I understand from reading it they havent even discussed buying the land from land owners yet... so who's to say that the owners of MC will even let it go... somehow, unless they offer them an unorthadox amount of money I dont see them selling out.

They've been talking about this for years... I bet it never happens.

I hope not....not anytime soon anyway. I like riding out there, but my favorite is River Run. I guess everyone has their favs. as well.

The "talk" has been for some time now. When I worked in J'ville, 5 yrs ago, that was the "big talk". I have no idea whats going to happen, or how this will unfold, or any specifics on this project. As this unfolds and the more info I find out, I will post accordingly.

Again, I am NOT, in ANY way......bad mouthing, telling people NOT to ride at this park, or trying to intentionally attack the reputation of Mud Creek ATV park or it's entities, in ANY sense. This article is simply for info. purposes ONLY!!

I agree, it would take an ungodly amount of money to buy that park out. If, speaking for MYSELF, I were in that position......I would hold on to it until the state forces me to sell.
